This selection from Aquinas’ magnum opus, the Summa Theologica, covers the great Catholic philosopher’s words at the nature of God, the nature of sin, and how God’s grace sanctifies and transforms the lives of Christians. In regards to the nature of God, this selection includes Aquinas’ arguments for God’s existence, his description of God’s metaphysical attributes, and his exploration of how God interacts with creation and the individuals who inhabit it. In the portion of the selection specializing in sin, Aquinas asks and answers the questions of what sin is and the way it affects human beings. The selection’s last portion presents Aquinas’ thoughts on sin’s treatment, God’s grace. For those in quest of Aquinas’ insight at the topics here presented, this selection may prove a less cumbersome and more streamlined alternative to all the Summa.
